It marks the first time the World Cup will be held in more than one country since 2002, when South Korea and Japan shared hosting duties.

The North American proposal is referred to as United 2026, as it bested a rival Moroccan bid, 134 votes to 65.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman headed to Moscow on Thursday to attend the opening of Russia's World Cup 2018.

Although it would be the first tournament to be hosted by three nations, the vast majority of games will be held in the US.

The eight-speed automatic transmission has also been recalibrated to speed up changes and sharpen response. A slotted design in the brake discs and the brake pads improve heat tolerance.

Canadian soccer fans celebrated Wednesday after Federation Internationale de Football Association announced the country will co-host the 2026 World Cup, but fans in Vancouver will have to travel to see one of the world's biggest sporting events.

The opening game of the World Cup attracts a global audience of up to one billion people, so it is a real shame that Russian Federation 2018 starts with a game that is unlikely to provide a fitting prelude for what is to come. Another three are cities that will have expansion teams coming into MLS. The United States will host the remaining 60, including the final.

Canada and Mexico will stage 10 matches each.

The quadrennial month-long event will see 32 nations, divided into eight groups, competing in 64 games over 32 days and fighting it out for the coveted trophy.

The tournament is expected to generate $5 billion in economic impact for the 16 host cities, according to Canada Soccer.
